WEll atleast i cam get some fireworks to sell in a month or so for profit
fireworks >> gun ?
# Aug 17 2005 at 2:45 AM Rating: Decent
Hey....

no theres an idea

does anyone know how to replace the gun firing sound, with the firework sound ?

it would be awesome if firing my gun made the firework detonation noise when I pull the trigger...:D

I could cope with the fireworks noise if it wasnt such a random, 'duck-an-cover-the-VC-are-comin' kind of noise... I get all sorts of Vietnam flash backs and I'm not even a Vetran of that particular war.

Somewhere in Windurst Waters there's a taru with blood-shot eyes hugging his knees and rocking back and forth because the damn fireworks last all night every night and he hasn't been able to sleep in a month.

And im sitting right there beside that taru with a flask of sake... lately i like to imagine that the fireworks are the SE staff that the dancing taru have launched out of cannons and are casting firaga spells at... >.> i hope that doesnt make me a bad taru ._.
The real reason
# Aug 16 2005 at 8:21 AM Rating: Excellent
Ripped from the headlines, folks:

=THEY CAN'T TURN IT OFF!=

Officials at Square Enix are in a panic this morning. Hamazu Okinawa, Chief Button Pusher #1, has come down with the flu. Mr. Okinawa's job at SE was to push the button that ended Summerfest for the popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XI.

The rest of the staff is left confused and befuddled as to what the next course of action should be. If someone stepped up and pushed Mr. Okinawa's button for him- his job would be rendered useless immediately. And Mr. Okinawa had promised to take the staff out for sake when he got back. The staff fears if they became responsible for Mr. Okinawa's job being taken away he wouldn't be too inclined to hang out with them anymore.

Doctors have ordered Mr. Okinawa to rest in bed, drink plenty of fluids and not return to work until the 22nd. In response the staff at SE has decided to extend Summerfest until his return- so they can get drunk on Mr. Okinawa's tab.

Is it just me or do the swimsuits make males (except taru) look like gay slaves? And ya music makes me a crazy little taru
Is it just me?
# Aug 16 2005 at 2:33 AM Rating: Decent
Maybe I'm crazy, but is the stupid music and repetative booming of the fireworks just becoming a constant annoyance... I was looking forward to this being over... Thanks SE.

Blue Oyster Cult - Dont´t Fear (the Reaper) Lyrics

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind the sun or the rain (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man
La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
Baby I'm your man
La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared (saying don't be afraid)
Come on baby (and she had no fear)
And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)

Collector's Question

So is the Chocobo racing an event-only quest? I thought it was just added as a permanent thing.

All I had down for this event was to get the 2/4 pieces of the swimsuit (done) and crafting yourself a Goldfish Bowl (done). If there's more to it than that, please let me know so I can use this extra week to get it done.

Edit: Actually, one more question - I'd heard the event had three parts. Isn't Azimuth Circle the second after Goldfish Scooping?

You are correct. The chocobo racing is a permanent thing they added. As for the third part of the event... well, I'm not sure. I had heard that somewhere too.

If you don't like the music, either turn music off or hit the mute button! Easy fix.

i personally find it funny how the sound effects go off before the fireworks actually start and are horriblly off timed.

I have had the music turned off, but that doesn't stop me from hearing the damn fireworks every night anytime I'm in one of the areas where they go off. ~_~;; Of course I could turn off the sound effects too and not hear those; but then I wouldn't be able to hear any other sound effects, which kinda ruins the feeling of the game. I just wish there was an option to turn off just the firework sound effects. <.<;; The fireworks themselves are pretty, and I wouldn't mind them if it weren't for the annoying sounds that accompany them.

I sympathize with you. This is my 2nd Summerfest/Sunbreeze, and from the moment they announced its imminent return I was cringing. The memories of last year's ongoing lame music and BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM PIZZOWOWOWOW from the fireworks had me dreading this stupid event. My dread was soon rekindled around 2 milliseconds after the music began with Summerbreeze.

If I am playing this game next year, and they insist on doing the same stupid event, I will book a flight to Japan and personally kick the guy who came up with the music and firework noises square in the ***.
Music goooood.....

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. I look forward to the awesome music! The only thing the music needs is maybe some more cowbell. You can never have enough cowbell. I have a fever, and the only prescription ->> more cowbell.

Someone needs to be beaten to death with an Onion Dagger. Why in gods name would you want this horrid activity to continue. When ever that music starts, i feel my insides being to shrivel up and when the fireworks start i wanna ram my head into a tree to stop them.


It would be great if they would fix the fireworks to where you can only hear them in you're close to a city. The only place of refuge is an Airship
CONFUSING

This is good news to me, wasn't looking forward to the festival ending yet.

But still, one must wonder exactly how "by popular demand" a thing in FFXI can be extended? They don't have an e-mail for these type of things in particular, they certainly don't have official forums to comment on, and most NA aren't a fan of the festival so it can mean only one thing...

The JP Button on the hidden site, far too pure for dirty American eyes to see! Suddenly it all starts to make a bit more sense!

There is a board on Allakhazam that Square-Enix does officially check.

I don't know how many more of those boards exist, but that's one of them.

To disable the firework noise, navigate to the following folder (this may be different depending on where you have FFXI installed):

PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\sound\win\se\se034

And delete/rename/move somewhere else the following two files (you should really make a backup in case you go mad and decide you really like the firework noises afterall):

se034071.spw
se034072.spw

I heard something about Chocobo racing between cities yet I have not found anything in-game indicating a race event. Any news on this or is it just a rumor? Agreed, the music does suck and you would think they might change it a bit from year to year.. As far as the fireworks go, if I play in an area that has fireworks for any length of time I do one of two things. I turn the volume all the way down or get my Tylenol ready. Just turn your sets/speakers down, problem solved. The swimgear looks hawt on the babes but on the guys it's kind of... ahem.. foppish. I really never wanted to look like a Hooters girl in my short shorts. I'm afraid if I bend over or take a knee in them my "goldfish bowls" might fall out the bottom. Anyone want some wings?

Talk to the various NPCs in the 3 major towns in the chocobo stables. I found several of these quest starters while trying to rent a chocobo. Instead of the normal you have XXX gil and chocobos are XXXX gil you are prompted to escort a chocobo/npc to a major town. I accepted the quest once to get it out of the way ( so i could get my birdy) and have yet to complete it.
RE: bowls
# Aug 15 2005 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
The choco-vendors gives out the quest, if it's a city that has multiple vendors, just talk to all of them till you get it, the one that gives the quest (seems to change each time you zone) they should say something along the lines of "I know your a buissy adventurer, but if you would be so kind to return this chocobo to so-and-so we would appritiate it." so far my personal best has been 2 seconds shy of the Bastok-Jeuno race (got stuck up on the little arche leading to jeuno ><) reward for failing was a ghysal greean (woot >.>).

Why? Why must this go on? How many deaths by insanity shall happen before end this madness?

The taru race are now eating galka due to this. The other day I ran into site and it was horrific. Please SE put an end to this and save lives.

Personally I am most excited that the festival is extended because that means I can do more goldfish scooping for goldfish sets and make more of my friends goldfish bowls for their houses! *muahahahahaaaaaaaaa*
